Altman discovered this lanky weirdo goddess when he cast her in her most adorable role as Suzanne Davis, a wide eyed cutie addicted to fast cars, in the fabulous Brewster McCloud. He was not the only one smitten.
Aside from several of his films, including my beloved Nashville Shelley Duvall has starred in several classics. Woody Allen used her as a “transplendent” Rolling Stone columnist date in Annie Hall; she gave an inspired (even if it was tortured out of her) performance in The Shining; we all remember her from Faerie Tale Theater growing up; and today she served as muse for Brixpick fave Guy Madden.
Plus, I spoke to her once on the phone and she was very pleasant… but why, oh why has she nearly disappeared? According to IMDB her latest projects include a stint on The Hughleys and a movie called Big Monster on Campus. She's such a talent and unique beauty who I've always been intrigued by, I wish she'd make a come back.
